Directions

A film by Stephan Komandarev. 

In the span of twen­ty-four hours, the fate of various people’s lives will col­li­de and be affec­ted during each indi­vi­du­als taxi ride. All are vic­tims of the decli­ne of a suf­fe­ring nation.

We dri­ve through the streets of the city of Sofia and look through the eyes of dri­vers and cli­ents as hope slow­ly creeps in. We see that each decisi­on we make has a ripp­le effect on others. We learn that even one person’s death could give ano­t­her the chan­ce at a new life. That just one simp­le act of kind­ness will inde­ed make a difference.

These sto­ries are about love and indif­fe­rence, about devo­ti­on and lone­li­ness; all con­nec­ted by a radio show that poses ques­ti­ons but gives no ans­wers. This is a sto­ry about a society’s need for a new DIRECTION even if it was as inva­si­ve as open heart surgery
